The Main Treatment In Diabetics?
Hello, my mother was tested for GDP and GD2PP hemoglobin A1c fibers (sorry if I’m wrong), the results were 92 during fasting, 157 after eating and 5.1 for the hemoglobin results, the question is whether this is normal? Or already included in the prediabetes category? Thank you doctor
Hello Marini! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Diabetes or type 2 diabetes mellitus occurs because the hormone insulin used to control blood sugar levels cannot be used by the body, so blood sugar levels increase. Diabetes often occurs in people with parents, siblings, siblings, or children who have diabetes. Diabetes also often occurs in overweight or overweight people. Patients with diabetes often do not show any symptoms, but sometimes there are symptoms in the form of feeling thirsty all the time, being hungry, urinating more frequently, getting tired, and losing weight. The main treatment in diabetes is to regulate a healthier diet, maintain ideal body weight, and increase physical activity. Someone said to have diabetes if there are symptoms (frequent thirst, frequent hunger, frequent urination, and weight loss) accompanied by blood sugar levels when 200 mg / dL or more, there are symptoms accompanied by fasting blood sugar levels 126 mg / dL or more, or blood sugar levels 2 hours after eating (GD2PP) 200 mg / dL.
On the results of your mother's examination, your mother has not had diabetes, but GD2PP levels that are in the range of 140-199 mg / dL indicate that she has prediabetes, more precisely impaired glucose tolerance. Your mother does not need medication, but your mother must have started to change her lifestyle to be healthier. Your mother needs to adopt a healthier diet, by eating more fruits and vegetables, reducing the intake of simple carbohydrates (for example by replacing white rice to brown rice or regular bread into whole wheat bread), and avoiding foods that contain lots of fat, such as foods that are high in fat fried, oily, or contains coconut milk. You should also increase your physical activity for at least 30 minutes per day, such as brisk walking, biking, or swimming. Your mother should also control to the doctor regularly as recommended by the doctor who examined your mother.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
